Okay Beauties, When I bought the Tarte pin-up girl palette it unlocked a level of blush craziness in me that I'd never imagined possible. The only problem is I don't know how to pick out blush for myself. How do you find a color that looks good on you? Are there any brands that are particularly good?
Hey everyone! I wear Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation everyday. I'm only 16, so sometimes I feel like it's a bit too much for me. I'm looking to switch to a BB cream. Since ELDW has great coverage, it's important to me that my BB cream isn't too light in coverage as I've found some BB creams to be. I have a few birthmarks that I like to cover along with some redness around my nose area. Can anyone recommend a BB cream for me to try?
Today I am wearing: -Urban Decay Brow Box -Ulta Shadow Primer -Naked 2 Snakebite in crease and buff on lid -Stila liner in black (wing) -Sephora anti-shine primer -Becca Foundation (applied with Beauty Blender) -Nars Radiant Creamy concealer -Cover FX Loose Powder -It Cosmetics Cream Hightlight -Elf Bronzer -Ben Nye Setting Spray

Hello, I am currently using the Full Cover Concealer from MUFE in No.7 Sand and it was great during the summer time. And now, when we hits colder months in Canada, the concealer still do its job in terms of concealing and long-lasting and here comes the problem; the concealer look dried up and a bit caked on. I have tried mixed a little bit of the Diorskin Star Foundation with it to increase the "blendability" for the concealer. Afterward, it does made the blending nice and easy but it was not very skin-like. Now, I do moisturize well with Fresh Lotus Face Cream and Dior Hydralife Sorbete Serum. My skin is exfoliated with Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid as well as Clarisonic before hand so no dry patches whatsoever. Now, can beauty experts suggest some tips and tricks make the concealer look skin-like while maintaining the full full full coverage of the concealer?
It doesn't seem to matter makeup I wear... I ALWAYS show up stark white in flash photos - and yes, I've tried taking them at all different distances. I'm kinda fair as it is. Light skin with really warm undertones. I'm not sure if its a blush I'm using, a bronzer, a setting powder? I usually use Nars Sheer Glow or Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, MAC MSF Natural, whichever bronzer I feel like using (either the Anastasia contour kit or NYC sunny bronzer), and a Nars blush. I also always use Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. Any suggestions on what could be causing me to look like a corpse in photos/product recommendations to solve my issue?
Hey all, I'm currently debating between the benefit cheeky sweet palette, the tarte pin-up girl palette, the NARS virtual definition palette, and the hourglass ambient lighting blush palette. I already have one of the hourglass blushes and I have hoola from the benefit palette. Does anyone have any thoughts about these palettes? What's good, what's crappy etc? I'd love to hear any thoughts about any of these.
I'm a little a lot peeved. Sephora carries 17 of the 20 NARS foundation shades online, they have all of the light shades, all of the medium shades, but are missing three of the darker shades: New Guina (which is actually a medium-dark shade), New Orleans, and Benares. Is there any particular reason Sephora doesn't carry these shades? I think what bothers me is the fact that I fall into that darker range that they're missing, and online they only have two of the four dark options even available to buy and in store (or at least every store near me - and that's eight stores) there's only one. So why Sephora, why? Finding foundation is already one heck of a task because I am on the darker side of the scale, and it doesn't help when all of a brands colors aren't made available and literally half the options for my skin tone, which weren't many to begin with, are gone. Can anyone shine some light on this?
Which foundations have you guys liked for sensitive skin. Sephora discontinued my favorite Lorac foundation, it was heaven sent for my sensitive and acne prone skin. I am not using Hourglass foundation with a brush. In store they matched my skin but now the secretary at work said it looked too orange on my skin! How embarrassing...so the search begins anew, Any other suggestions? I need a good pale-with yellow undertone similar to Lorac with medium to full coverage for acne prone skin? And go! Thanks
what are your thoughts? sometimes i feel like my foundation is too heavy (i know i could use a lighter coverage, but i always feel like those don't do anything) so i was wondering what people think about wearing concealer without foundation and if anyone has any tips?
I'm going to post a picture of me without makeup. Because hey, I love makeup, but I'm also working on embracing my face au naturel, too. None of this "I'm not wearing makeup" when you're wearing a tinted moisturizer, brown mascara, and have a slight flush to your cheeks and lips. I'm talking no makeup AT ALL (No, not even clear lip balm). This is me, about 10 minutes out of the shower. Anyone else brave enough?

I was one of the Lucky BeautyTalker's who was gifted the New line on makeup by Perricone MD from Sephora. And i wanted to share my thought on it. For starters i am a Medium-Tan skintone, and i do have fairly dry skin. I have worn the products for 3 days now and i have a pretty good idea of how they are. Here is a picture of what i received. I was sent an extra No Foundation Foundation instead of the No Foundation Foundation Serum. So i kept the extra in the box. I won't be able to review the serum but i'm sure there will be others posting their reviews. No Foundation Foundation - I received both shades, And the second one is a good match for my skin, The first shade i can work with, I add a drop of the Bronzer and it's also a good color match. This is a runny liquid texture, and it is a sheer coverage. One layer definitely evens out my skin, covers redness, and is not detectable on my skin at all! Unfortunately i have a little hyper pigmentation right now, so i do need 2 layers. And with that second layer it bumps the coverage to medium, and still looks very natural on my skin. I think the 2 big things i don't like is the smell, But it's a personal preference, And it's a little sticky on the skin. I have been setting with a light powder but my nose got a little oily at the end of the day. So today i am trying it the MUFE setting powder.But i do overall like this. If you have relatively good skin with nothing major to cover up, this is a great product. It's so lightweight, and undetectable on the skin! Here is a picture of both foundations swatched, taken outside. (The one on top of Shade 2, Bottom is Shade 1) No Blush Blush - I'm in LOVE with this. It is a beautiful color. I apply this by dotting it on the back of my hand, and take a blush brush to carefully applying it to my cheeks. I can't use my fingers for cream/liquid blushed because i tend to go all over the place. But using a brush works for me. It blends like a dream! No Bronzer Bronzer - As i said already i mix this with the lighter foundation, and i also use this after foundation like i use my regular bronzer. Which is to contour lightly around the face. Like the blush, it blends so beautifully. And i can build it up with a second layer to get more color, and it's still such a natural look! No Concealer Concealer - I LOVE this. It's the perfect shade to really brighten up my eye area. I'm not a huge concealer Guru, I haven't used many for my Under eye area because i don't have dark circles. But i don't think i can go back to not using it! I see myself purchasing this when i run out! I feel like it is a very sheer coverage, so if you need a full coverage concealer, this might not be the one for you. No Lipstick Lipstick - Again, I LOVE this. I feel like i would purchase this when i'm out! I love the color, and it's very hydrating! I use a lot of sheer lipsticks/balms instead on lipstick lately, and i'm just in love. I've also tried patting a little of the blush on my lips and then applying this, and it's GORGEOUS. Here is a picture of all of them, taken outside. Left to Right- Lipstick, Bronzer, Blush, Concealer No Mascara Mascara - I think the wand it pretty neat, but i'm still very unsure how i like this. I think the problem is there is too much product on the wand, I think i need to wipe it off. I need to play around like it more. So if you have any tips on that please share! I don't know if this is going to help anyone, but hopefully the swatches might! Overall i really like the makeup. I think the main problem is the lack of shades. Hopefully Perricone will expand it, but if the color works for you, i think these are great products to try! My top recommendation is for the lipstick, and blush! They are gorgeous!
I have been trying so hard to get a smoother foundation finish but its not working! lol ive moisturize and put a primer on my skin. I exflioate twice a week and when I do I exfloiate before I put my makeup up on. Lately im starting to hate the way my makeup looks my pimples poke through alot and my face has a bumpy look to it. Can anyone please help me on what I should do. I have dry skin and I am currently using Mac Studio Fix in NC 50 and NYX HD concealer. Am I using the wrong foundation?
I am using Becca in Olive. In the summer it was great, but my skin is a little lighter now and it makes me look like I put tanner on. Will Buttercup work if I'm just a tad lighter? I also use CoverFX in G50, which seems to be a good match, but I like to mix it up and the coverage Becca gives is great. Thanks!
so i figured this would be the easiest way to list suggestions instead of hunting down threads where you have spoken about it i actually had an idea and i am not sure if you have tried it yet... i emailed koh gen do a while back and received a ton of foundation samples from them, some of them were a pearl white makeup base... i was wondering if maybe you could mix something like that with a foundation that is really close to working for you? it could be like a science experiment haha. not sure if it would really work, or if it would even be worth it, but it might be fun
I didn't exactly know what to name this post, excuse the confusion. Here's what happened: During the OH SO GREAT VIB Sale, I bought a few itmes (cologne, perfume, highlights) and added a few samples and BI Point Perks that I wanted to try. One of those samples was the Becca Ever-Matte PPP. I have never had luck with other primers (I have extremely oily skin) besides the NYX Pore filler, but as a VIB, I wanted to continue to give Sephora all my money without having to travel to Target or Ulta for just a primer Lol... Well... When I decided to use the sample, it was a bit more chunky than expected. I chalked it up to the weather. I put it on... felt a tingle... then my skin tightening... As I wait for it to dry a bit, I go and reach for my foundation... and as soon as I look in the mirror, my face is GHOSTLY white and dry! I wiped it all off with a cleansing wipe but now my face really burns and still feels very tight. You know that feeling when you have a cleansing mask on? Yeah, not very comfortable. Has anyone else had this happen???
Recently Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12hr Blush in Blushing Bride switched from a shimmery plum to a "plumy rose." I'm considering buying it but as I don't have a store with it in stock nearby, I was wondering if anyone has the new formulation that they could swatch or a link to a swatch online? How do you feel about the new color formulation?
I know there are a lot of contouring threads but I wanted to hear everyones thoughts on these two buzzed about products. What do you guys think? Which one to have, love, or like better? I don't have either but I am looking into purchasing one of them.
I don't think I've ever found one I don't like. Even the Chanel Camelia de Plumes (as seen below) that I thought would be too ashy on my skintone. So I'm wondering - what are your favorite highlighters?
Hi ladies! I used to love Benefit Dandelion as the most mistake proof way to get a natural flush. Until I realized it had a high amount of titanium dioxide which causes acne for me (deal breaker!!). So now I'm looking for a replacement, because I really love that super light satin/matte pink. Would love to hear any suggestions, please no glitterbombs. Thanks!
